From a young age, Sophia Kelley has vivid memories of taking long walks with her parents and stopping by any open houses they came across. It wasn't long before she developed an appreciation for architecture and the unique elements she saw in every home.
As the daughter of a fine arts dealer and real estate financier, Sophia was instilled with an appreciation of both the aesthetic and pragmatic aspects of home ownership. Her parents taught her to recognize the beauty and value the history of vintage homes, as well as understanding that real estate has historically proven to be one of the wisest and most stable investments.
She entered the real estate field at the age of 22 with a passion to incorporate her generation's love for technology with the age-old practices of traditional marketing, that have been proven effective time and time again.
Sophia comes from a multi-cultural background and speaks fluent Armenian. She welcomes and appreciates the opportunity to serve a diverse clientele from all walks of life.
"Sophia is always available day or night. I have telephoned her as late as 11:00 pm and as early as 7:00 am. It is as if she is sitting by the telephone waiting for your call. She always answers. There were only two times that her voice mail picked up and she returned the call before I had finished my message. Sophia treats you as if you are her only client. She makes you feel as if all your worries and concerns belong to her. She is totally there for her clients. Sophia treats you just like family. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She has a very good working knowledge of the real estate industry. We followed all of her suggestions. Sophia held one open house and we immediately had three offers, all over asking. Two days after the open house we had two more offers. Sophia negotiated the offers and both potential buyers offered more. Our house sold for $26,000.00 over asking within five days of listing our property. We closed on our property before 30 days. Thank you Sophia for a wonderful experience." -Laura C.
"I am extremely grateful to have found Ms. Kelley when I was looking for a new home in the LA area. She was by far the most prepared, professional, and helpful realtor I've worked with for any real estate endeavor. Sophia was so helpful to me and my family and things couldn't have worked out any better. I met her my first day in LA and she had over a dozen tour appointments already set up for me. She had the patience to find me a great deal, and the expertise to quickly close on it for me. I couldn't picture a more sophisticated realtor anywhere in California! On top of that, Sophia was very kind and I felt like she really understood my family's needs. If you are looking for help with any real estate project in California, I can confidently recommend Sophia to help you." -Sam A.
"My husband and I were driving around and stopped at an open house. The home didn’t fit what we were looking for but I got a good vibe from the agent, Sophia Kelley. She seemed very professional and knowledgeable. When I finally found a property that I liked, I immediately thought to contact Sophia. She has been the most helpful agent I have contacted/worked with. We were first time home buyers and had millions of questions. Sophia was a phone call, email, text away. No matter how mundane our questions or fears were, she responded quickly and professionally. Sophia made sure that everyone was well informed about where we were in the process and what to expect, even with our lender. The transaction was very smooth, without any hiccups, and we closed escrow early. She is down to earth, knowledgeable, and honest. She stands behind her words and ensures that you are taken care of. I would recommend her to anyone. She is fantastic!" -Maricela A.
"Winning! That's how we felt buying our first home with SophiaKelley! It truly is a seller's market, but working Sophia proved that a first time home buyer can succeed. She is extremely professional. She is detail oriented and extremely responsive, but her best skill is negotiating. I will definitely recommend her to family and friends." -Daniel A.
"I accompanied & advised some acquaintances who were looking for an income property in Redlands, where I own two rentals. On our several visits to Redlands to view various properties I found Sophia to be knowledgeable, thorough, friendly and patient. She was not only a good listener who made a point to learn what was needed and wanted, but also offered welcome suggestions for possibilities that we had not considered. Thanks to Sophia, the perfect property was found and purchased in a clean and painless transaction. I will absolutely call upon Sophia again to help me for my next real estate deal." -Jon S.
"Ms. Kelley helped me and my family to secure a rental property at the most critical time after we moved out of our home due to a slab leak. She was very professional, respectful, and understood our plight and the need to promptly secure a place, and that she did very humanely. She was very friendly and responded to all our questions and ensured that we got the kind of place that we needed within a very short time." -George C.
"Sophia made both the selling and buying process easy and smooth - she was consistently available for any questions that I had and was incredibly supportive throughout the entire selling/buying process. Sophia sold my condo for much more that I anticipated and made sure that she was able to close my purchase and sale within a timeframe that worked for me. Sophia is an amazing person and I truly enjoyed working with her. I highly recommend her to others!" -Angie J.
